31 Day Challenge- Day 31: Re-Create your Favorite Challenge

Day 31 of the 31 Day Challenge calls for Re-Creating your Favorite Challenge.  It was hard to choose just one challenge to re-create.  I had a really good time with this challenge.  In the end I decided to re-create my Day 13:Animal Print nails with just a few changes.

I started with Sinful Colors Basecoat then added L.A. Colors American Manicure.  I free-handed some French tips with Pure Ice Platinum Magic Base Coat. 
I took my dotting tool and Maybelline Bold Gold and added gold spots to one side of my nails.
After my gold polish was dry, I took the smaller end of my dotting tool and Salon Express Nail Art Paint in Black and outlined the gold spots.  I also added a few black spots.
I let my polish dry completely then added Poshé super-fast drying top coat.  I love these nails.  I think it is a fun and easy design.

31 Day Challenge- Day 30: Inspired by a Tutorial

Day 30 of the 31 Day Challenge calls for Nails Inspired by a Tutorial.  I chose to recreate Cutepolish’s popcorn nails.  Cutepolish is one of my favorite YouTubers.  I have wanted to recreate these nails for the longest time.  One of the great things about the 31 Day Challenge is you can get around to doing things you may have been putting off.

I started with Sinful Colors Basecoat then used Nailene Perfect Pedicure French Polish Guides to tape off the tips of my nails—leaving more of a tip on my ring finger like suggested in the video.  I then added French tips using Pure Ice Platinum Magic Base Coat.  When that was dry I peeled off the French Polish Guides.
Next I mixed Julep Daisy and Pure Ice Platinum Magic Base Coat to create light yellow.  I did this on my Dollar Tree craft & activity mat (I will have a post about it soon).  I took my dotting tool and dotted on a pile of popcorn above my ring finger French tips.  I added Nicole by O.P.I. Better After Dark with my dotting tool and pushed the dots to make more of a crescent shape.  I then added Julep Daisy with my dotting tool for some butter.  I then took my dotting tool and Sinful Colors No Text Red! to add a red line over the white tips of my nails.  For my ring fingers I added two horizontal red lines and a few vertical red lines to create a classic popcorn container.  I finished off with Poshé super-fast drying top coat.
I am so happy I finally recreated this look.  I love the way if came out!  It was fun and simple to do.  I love doing French tip nails with a twist.  These are perfect nails for a movie night/marathon.
